No detail must fail

when a burning building could collapse from one second to another

Firefighters have to learn how to read buildings. The greatest risks in a building on fire are extreme heat and structural collapse. Houses made of wood burn in steadier and more predictable ways, while steel constructions start melting when the temperature is high enough, risking unpredictable collapses.

Going into such extreme situations requires enormous trust: in your colleagues and the stability of your teamwork. It also requires trusting your equipment, down to every single detail.

Equipped to survive

800 degrees centigrade is a normal temperature for fires. Close to the floor in a building on fire it can be considerably cooler, around 50 or 60 degrees.
To handle such temperatures, firefighter gear must live up to strict standards for heat resistance, limited flame spread and low heat transfer. All reflective materials must be individually tested for flame spreading and heat resistance, where requirements must be met for ignition, melting, hole formation, dripping and shrinkage. Reflective materials are also tested to ensure that they meet visibility standards after exposure to the harsh testing conditions.

ENSURING HIGH QUALITY

We put a lot of trust in our equipment. We have to. We’re exposed to pretty extreme temperatures, so our gear needs to be heavy duty. Gear that functions is the difference between life and death.
